Jayson Tatum scored 20 points on 7-of-17 from the floor on Saturday, adding six rebounds, five assists and a triple in a Game 7 victory.
Tatum hit some big buckets early in the third that really put the necessary distance between Boston and the Bucks tonight. The Celtics will lean on him for scoring but he'll have his work cut out for him on the defensive end in round two with the versatile and dangerous bodies the Sixers can play at the forward spots. Semi Ojeleye, who played solid defense on the Greek Freak in this series, will also handle that burden. He finished with five points and five rebounds in 29 minutes tonight but will probably be in the starting five for Game 1.
